Theories of Mathematics Education: A global survey of theoretical frameworks/trends in mathematics education research
Sriraman, Bharath & English, Lyn D. (2005) Theories of Mathematics Education: A global survey of theoretical frameworks/trends in mathematics education research. International Reviews on Mathematical Education, 37(6), pp. 450-456.
In this article we survey the history of research on theories in mathematics education. We also briefly examine the origins of this line of inquiry, the contribution of Hans-Georg Steiner, the activities of various international topics groups and current discussions of theories in mathematics education research. We conclude by outlining current positions and questions addressed by mathematics education researchers in the research forum on theories at the 2005 PME meeting in Melbourne, Australia.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
